Bike Parking in Crisis?

In Head House Square the old single spaced parking meters have been replaced by multi-spaced parking kiosks or smart meters.

While this does remove some sidewalk clutter it takes away dozens of metal posts to secure your bike to. Currently there are no plans to expand the program but if the city decides to replace the meters en masse it could lead to a bike parking crises in neighborhoods where bike parking is either oversubscribed or non-existent.
